This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Shazam Fury of the Gods trailer teaser
« on: October 16, 2021, 10:27:33 PM »


Well, I'm tired of bitching about movies, but I really liked Shazam. I liked it because it wasn't a big spectacle. The film had some heart and was dialed way down from the other DC films being so serious and so full of CGI nonsense.

I really hope this is just hype and the next Shazam movie retains it's charm from the first film.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

I'll go and see this just to watch Helen Mirren be a BBEG.

It felt a bit like an ad for the next Reaper minis Kickstarter.

They race swapped Hawkman... Hard pass.

Here is why this forum tends to be so stupid. Many people here think Joe Biden is "The Left", when he is actually Far Right and every US republican is just an idiot.

Well, Black Adam is being played by the Rock, who is not of Egyptian descent, so does that mean you'll skip that movie too?

Based on the other famous Egyptian in comics (Apocalypse), Black Adam should be blue and have what appears to be a detachable jaw. But instead, he has a pointy ears like the elf, and I think the Rock would make a good Arwen.

If that paragraph made no sense, well that's comics.

If they got a undersea gopher to play Hawkman, and he looked like hawkman - nobody would bring up species swapping.

Hawkman is swapped to make a point and everything else second. I don't care about hawkman, and im not gonna pretend I do, but to say its not because of modern politics is dishonest.

This movie is a pass for me anyway since Im sick of capeshit films.
